When PowerPoint is launched, or when you create a new presentation, you typically see the first slide of the presentation. This slide is known as the Title slide. It contains placeholders for the slide title and the slide subtitle. Note that this layout is different from other slides which typically have a title placeholder with another placeholder for bulleted text (or a chart, graphic, etc.). All these other slides are influenced by the Slide Master, which governs their appearance and layout. The appearance and look of the Title Slide is influenced by the Title Master. This is a separate Master that is a subset of the Slide Master.

Even if you are not aware, every presentation you create has its own Slide Master. This Master governs the default attributes like slide background, font choices, colors, and even the positioning of the placeholders in your slide. Thus if you end up with a 50 slide presentation that uses center aligned titles that you want changed to left aligned titles in a larger font size. Then you need to make this change only once within the Slide Master, and all 50 slides update at once with your new Title formatting!

Every individual slide that you see within your PowerPoint deck may have its own unique content, but there’s so much consistency as far as the look of successive slides is considered. All slides typically have the same slide background, and also the same fonts. You really don’t have to do anything other than adding new slides and typing in your text. All the formatting is taken care of by some magical behind-the-scenes intelligence within PowerPoint. Also if you print notes pages or handouts from PowerPoint, you will find that these are also formatted to synchronize with the look of your slides. Ever wonder how you can control all this intelligence? Well, the answer is the Masters that are contained within every PowerPoint presentation.

Working with Themes in various versions of Microsoft Office (and PowerPoint), we stumbled into a huge road-block: Theme THMX files saved in Theme Builder refused to be applied in PowerPoint 2010 (Windows) and 2011 (Mac). Strangely, these THMX files continued to work in PowerPoint 2007 (Windows) and 2008 (Mac). We compared the THMX files created by Theme Builder to those saved from within PowerPoint, and realized that Theme Builder actually removes content from THMX files. Worse, it does so without warning, and you can easily lose all your Slide Layouts, Slide Master, basic presentation info, and even the THMX file’s thumbnail by just opening a perfectly good THMX and re-saving it within Theme Builder! Unfortunately, there are some parameters of a THMX file that are not exposed in PowerPoint. You must edit these either using an XML editor or Theme Builder.

After finding that Themes saved in Theme Builder were not working in PowerPoint 2010 (Windows) and 2011 (Mac), we decided to explore the issue further, and find out what exactly Theme Builder did to cause these incompatibilities. So, to compare the Theme saved in Theme Builder with its original version (which was saved in PowerPoint 2007/2010 as a Theme).
